    They could be testing his system ( eg port 80) to see if he has open ports
    and if he does deliver that message. This may be related to them not
    wanting him using his machine as a server.
    He could sit there running tcpdump and looking at the request packets sent
    to him, and see if they are probing some of his ports.

    That they would send different responses depending on the browser
    identification is just weird.
